13 Dec ‘The Multi-Plane Show’ Corey Helford Gallery
December 12 – December 17, 2009
Corey Helford Gallery is proud to present “The Multi-Plane Show”. The gallery’s largest group show of 2009 brings together its favorite artists from the new contemporary fine art movement to pay tribute to the early days of animation. For this unique exhibition, each artist created an original painting using the multi-plane, which was made famous by pioneer animators Ub Iwerks, Max Fleischer, Bill Garrity, and Walt Disney. Consisting of three individual surfaces housed in a custom- made frame, the multi-plane creates depth and a three-dimensional effect through two glass foreground layers and a background wood panel.
The show features an unparalleled lineup of artists, including Todd Schorr, Gary Baseman, COOP, Tim Biskup, Sylvia Ji, Ron English and Tokidoki. And for this landmark exhibition, Corey Helford Gallery partnered with London’s StolenSpace Gallery to feature works by some of England’s sought-after contemporary artists D*Face, and Chloe Early. The show opened last night December 12, and the show will be on view until December 17, 2009.
